International conference focuses on intersex issues

On 7 November, FRA took part in the 1st ‘Inter*Conference’ to mark the Intersex Solidarity Day at the Vienna City Council in Austria.

FRA presented its findings in its focus paper on the fundamental rights situation of intersex people in the EU. The presentation was followed by a round table discussion in which representatives of political parties and intersex organisations discussed issues addressed in the paper and other issues of interest to the protection of the intersex people, with a particular focus on the Austrian context.  The conference hosted a number of thematic workshops and also created opportunities for networking for international intersex organisations to prepare the Trans*Inter*Conference which will take place in Munich in May 2016.
